It’s true: juicing does have some things about it that help make you healthier. Of course, there are a few fruits and vegetables, which when juiced, can have harmful properties too. More often than not this has to do with the level of pesticide residue they contain. This is the reason that you need to learn as much as you can about the proper methods of juicing, especially if you haven’t ever juiced before.
One of the best words to describe the act of juicing is efficiency. It might simply be our opinion, but you really can’t argue when it comes to efficiency. Juicing and cooking are both activities that require some degree of clean up. But consider you can prepare a healthy juice drink for breakfast. You can then drink it while you are on your way to start your day. If this is what you want to do, pick out your ingredients carefully because your stomach is going to be empty. It might not be the best idea to create juice that will slam into your stomach first thing in the morning. It is going to be a guaranteed wake up call so make sure you choose ingredients your empty stomach can handle.
Juicing affords you the chance to blend a drink that will improve your energy levels which is one of the hugest benefits. It’s also quite a lot more important for your body than pouring more coffee into it. Everybody hits the slumps in the afternoons but if your employer is kind enough to allow you to juice at work this can be an excellent way to get through it. So many people slow down after they eat lunch, particularly if they eat certain things. So juice a little bit later so that you can have a good sized energy boost. Just keep in mind that juicing isn’t designed to be a meal replacement. Remind yourself of this so that you don’t get into the habit of relying on it.
For very many years (decades) there’s been an issue with chemical contaminants (pesticides) in the food we eat. Don’t trust anybody who tells you that eating them is safe. If you find chemical contaminants concerning, you should avoid eating the following foods. No matter how you want to eat them, wash them as best, you can whether or not you juice them.
Carrots, Celery, Cucumbers, Lettuce, Collard Greens, and other vegetables like this. All of the vegetables grow in a particular pattern, and it shouldn’t take you long to notice that. You should also know that the veggies and fruits grown in the countries in South America are much more likely to have pesticide problems than those raised elsewhere. If you can afford to do so, you should only use certified fruits and vegetables in your diet. While expensive, this is also solid advice for those who aren’t fasting. If you want to juice, though, you should buy however many your budget will allow you to buy.
